button knots


We had a phone call last week from Spirals, saying that a customer had asked for one of Toby's button necklaces, but they'd run out. She wanted a green/blue/brown colour theme, choker length.

After a visit to the bead shop to buy lengths of cord in various colours, Toby chose a few drops from his vintage glass chandelier collection, then off to his bedroom to wade through jars and trays full to the brim with old buttons. He spent most of the weekend making jewellery, then I drove him to Hebden Bridge to deliver his creations.

Here you can see the final results, two knotted necklaces, the size is adjustable, using the loop and buttons. The lady can choose, hope she likes at least one of them! the other can stay in the shop for sale.

This style of necklace is £16 each, orders taken, email:

They're both gorgeous. I love the colours and the symmetry of the first one and I love the higgledepiggledy-ness of the second one. If I had to decide, the second one would be my favourite.

Haven't seen any of these for a while - glad you are still making them! These are both lovely, I'm sure they'll get snapped up.
